India stokes the fires a bit on its long-running tax dispute
with Vodafone (VOD
), sending the cell-phone operator a notice that it owes over $2B
on its $11.2 acquisition of a 67% stake in the Indian operations of Hutchison Whampoa in 2007. Vodafone continues to maintain that it owes the government zilch and says that the notice doesn't contain a deadline.
